Passion, death, life.
In Sardinia, faith and tradition meet
in the Mistery of Resurrection.
The Holy Week rites are evocative
events that you can't miss.
an ancient ceremony along the city streets: the Passion and Death of Christ. Solemn songs, tears and grief. This represents the evocative mourning of the whole population.
The mournful beat of the drums and the loud clatter of the traditional matraccas. The rites and prayers. The pathos and devotion.
Polyphonic Hymns, penitents dressed in white. The feast of Lunnisanti in Castelsardo: the enchantment of a timeless ancient Christian rite.
The deepest silence, broken only by chanting choirs. The death of Christ is re-enacted. A unique, emotive and sad ritual.
